Wine-of-the-Month Club is South Africa’s longest standing and largest wine club. Started in 1986 by Colin Collard, our focus has always been to sell wine that our expert panel have selected in a blind tasting. Why? Let’s face it. Wine can be intimidating. It’s difficult to try a new wine and to be sure it is top quality. But, how best do you do this?Well, before we get to that - answer these three questions:
- How many times have you chosen the same old wine - just to be safe?
- Have you ever stood in front of a supermarket shelf of wine and not known which to choose?
- Wouldn’t you like to learn more about wine, get to taste different types of wine and have them conveniently delivered to your home?
Did you answer ‘yes’ to any of these? So, what is the best way to solve this problem without the risk of trying lots of ordinary and expensive wines? Easy...
Our panel (of 12 independent wine experts) blind tastes over 2000 wines a year to make sure you receive the very best (blind wine tasting ensures no judge is influenced by a label or the beauty of a wine farm or warmth of the host). This way, we focus only on what’s most important "what you taste in the glass".
We deliver these panel-selected wines to your door. You choose your budget, where, when & how often you would like your pack delivered. As well as whether you would like Red, White or a Mixed case. And 6 or 12 bottles.
Included in the pack:
- Panel Selected Wines
- SA Connoisseur Magazine (An Insider's Guide to Wine)
- Neck tags for each wine giving you info like:
- Where the wine is from
- Tasting notes
- Food Pairing
- When best to drink it

"I don’t know if you have access to just how long I’ve been a member of your wine club, but it’s many years. Many years of wonderful good wines. I’ve genuinely never had a bad wine...”
Walter Passet, Blue Horizon Bay
“I’m very busy ... I work at multiple venues everyday – I just love the way your delivery guys make time to get me my delivery just when it suits me, a BIG shout out to the team.”
T. Moleleki, Fourways
“Thank you for bringing fine living to our busy lives ... full of good ideas and innovative surprises for your customers.
I can’t help wondering how many hard working people must be ‘behind the scene’.”
Dr. Julija Erhardt, Bryanston
“Thanks for the quick refund for the Semillon. I tried the wine and it was good. I’m just not a big Semillon fan.”
R. Khoza, Soweto
“Since joining the Wine-of-the-Month Club tasting panel as a founder member 28 years ago, I must have blind tasted at least 50 000 wines. I've seen the standard of Cape wines improve steadily over the years and I have never tired of discovering new ones every week.”
Dave Biggs, Wine-of-the-Month Club panel member

“Just wanted to say thank you, I have received the Cabernet Franc 2012. What really impressed and touched me was your personal hand written note of gratitude. I guess I am old school, and it was a wonderful surprise to see a handwritten note when we are surrounded by everything digital. Thank you for this and thank you for the magazine. Will surely enjoy the reading with my Cabernet Franc. Have a wonderful weekend.”

“Having just received one of my wine packs my compliments on your September issue of Connoisseur which has been excellent.
The article on decanting is most useful & will be put into effect promptly although we mostly drink white wines.
The sauce for oysters is one I have been hunting for, for a while !
Also nice sounding recipe for the chicken livers & butter beans.”
David Helps, 12 September 2018
